Cokie Roberts: The Constitution is the problem

Cokie Roberts said this morning on ABC’s This Week that our inability to fix our problems is the fault of the Constitution because it requires that people come together from different perspectives because we have divided branches of government.

This group of people in New York [Standard and Poor’s] is actually talking about more government rather than less government, Congressman. In fact, the reason they like France and Great Britain is because they’re parliamentary systems where the majority gets what it wants no matter what.

And the problem that we have here is the Constitution of the United States of America which actually does require people to come together from different perspectives whether it’s divided government or not. We have divided branches of government under any circumstance.

No silly news reporter, that’s not the problem. The problem is that we have people (read radical leftists) who swear to uphold the Constitution who actually oppose the Constitution and seek to undermine it in any way they can. That’s the real problem. And as Newsbusters points out, I’m sure Cokie Roberts wouldn’t decry divided government if Republicans controlled the Senate, House, and the Executive. In fact I bet she’d be clinging to the Constitution like those backward hicks in Pennsylvania clinging to their Bibles and their guns.
